Culture Night in Dublin

This post is a little disingenuous, as I wasn’t actually there, having been laid low by the bug/virus that’s going around. However, I do have a couple of things to share thanks to a relative: one is a short video from the chapel in Dublin Castle and a few photos. The other is some phone pictures from the Freemason’s Lodge on Molesworth Street. These don’t really capture the wealth of heavy-handed symbology, including but not limited to New Testament and Egyptian, or its horror-inspiring effect. As my sister commented, “It’s like a Disneyland for Satanists.”

Link to A Short History of the Most Worshipful Grand Lodge, including the text of a manuscript on masonic ritual from 1711 which is now housed in Trinity College, Dublin.

The photos are at my Flickr account, and the video is embedded below.
